in time as we did in alameda county in the oakland area of northern california and look at things like red lining maps and racial residential segregation racially restrictive covenants. you can actually map out areas where certain populations notably african-americans but also asian americans and latinos were not allowed to live. and where there was systemic disinvestment from those communities and then you come to today and you can overlay maps of life expectancy on those areas and you see the biggest disparities, actually occurring in the very same place as where there has been 20, 30, 40 years of systemic disinvestment from those communities. so the implication is that segregation has not only economic impacts but it also has profound health impacts that can be manifest in the actual length of people's lives. >> dr. iton, the idea here at current, the reason we're doing this is to bring people's attention to hunger. when you tie them with poverty even more so. tell us about a program that's the fresh works fund progra

. and that -- in california, it never matters if there are billionaires money doesn't matter in california elections but in national elections it always has. the traditional wisdom has now been bucked by this particular election. >> eliot: right. i think of the national spending patterns as well. you saw the sheldon adelsons. it is not clear to me all of his money, he backed a sequence of losers. somebody ed he was 0-9, all of the money simply bounced off of voter's consciousness. what will those funders say next time? >> you would have to ask sheldon adelson what he thought? i did meet some of these characters at some of the conventions. had a nice long talk with foster friess but what i think they're getting is somebody to listen to them, a place to put their money where their mouth is and where their values are. they may value that more than winning any particular race. >> eliot: even a consultant whom i rarely -- business models, go instead of giving it directly to a political campaign, build a grassroots organization. do somethi

california, ron waiting to talk to us. caller: good morning. good job. the issues are occluded. the whole congress -- i blame the entire congress for holding americans hostage for this results. this is not space science. we're not trying to go to pluto. we are trying to fix something of a vote of 425 people we have to convince. this is ridiculous. the price of health care is doubling as a first of the year. that has nothing to do with the fiscal cliff. that is congress not paying attention to what's going on with health care. they are blaming obamacare on this, but this was before the election the price of health care was going up. across the board, we are not dealing with problems at hand. both sides of the aisle, those that don't want to give an answer to this before we go over the fiscal cliff, they're not responding to the will of the people. they will be voted out. there's no doubt. if we have some very lovely and caring republicans that are very conservative and we love them, but we will vote them out if they don't fix this. we are holding them responsible as we are holding the demo

or california? and satisfy for for four years, the president followed colorado's model. california has a lot of reserves and they've created what, 20,000 oil jobs in the the last ten years, where texas created 200,000 and these are fairly well paying jobs so that's the issue before the obama administration, the second point is the market works. the reason that we can now extract shale, not just technology, but with oil prices higher, it becomes economically possible to to these things that we wouldn't price-wise be possible beforehand. >> well, we've been handed this incredible gift by mother nature. let's hope we don't blow it on the politics. >> we will-- >> we have to take one more break. when we come back, our hits and misses of the week. ♪ >> time now for hits and misses of the week. kim, first to you. >> a miss to the federal emergency management agency which announced this week that surprise, it will probably have to ask congress for a bailout for its flood insurance program after hurricane sandy. the national flood insurance program has been broken since inception because it fails
story, things are looking up in california have a surplus in a couple of years because they've raised taxes, what do you make of that? >> well. stuart: california is one of the states. >> california is a very, very mixed bag right now, because their economy is looking somewhat better, but relative to terrible. they had 13% unemployment just a little while ago. at the same time, however, they're doing this, by raising taxes and they have one of the worst out-migration problems in the country. stuart: will it work, will it give them a surplus? >> well, a short-term surplus doesn't help if it does long-term damage to your economy. right now, they are losing jobs to other states, and we've calculated, the manhattan did the study on jobs and migration and the number one place that california jobs are leaving and going to is texas and that tells us something, it's not an illusion, these are actual numbers. stuart: so, do you agree with the characterization of death spiral? and that's obviously dramatic stuff. >> right, right, one of the things. stuart: would you go that far? >> no, i wouldn

, the ballot initiative process in california is so famous. i do want to say that california had a couple of controversial ones here, 1, they did not vote down the death penalty, still allowed in california. 2, it looks like they passed a tax measure to make california the most taxed state in the union. so that's controversial here in california. a bit of a surprise, considering the economy here in the golden state isn't the best. but you mention the process, the ballot process across the country. yes, definitely, same-sex marriage and marijuana both faired very well at the ballot box. maine passed it, as well as maryland and washington, all passing referendums, allowing for same-sex marriage. they legalized it again in maine, maryland and washington, and an amendment to vote against it in minnesota is too close to call at this hour. meantime, to the medical marijuana front, we know that two big states here that passed the medical marijuana were -- lost you here, montana. and in oregon, it's failing. the interesting vote with marijuana was the fact that colorado and washington allowed it
is that it set the republican party up to go the way the republican party of california which is the party of nothing, the party of nowhere the party of nada. this is one of those issues that they have an inherit problem. how do they deal with that as a party given that the religious conservatives have a view on this. even rudy jewel giuliani, who was on television last night. paraphrasing, i don't get the republicans. we don't want the state to decide except when it comes to gay marriage then the state shouldn't decide. we don't want people in our bedroom until this. >> gavin: rudy giuliani with a sanctuary status on documented immigrants. we'll look at what a second term of obama looks like. here in our own country. >> it's an issue that ultimately effects each and every one of us. >> thats why current is stepping up. >> ... by feeding the needy. >>... feeding the needy. >>... feeding the needy. >>... feeding the needy. >>... feeding the needy. >> for an entire week we'll explore hunger, malnutrition even obesity. >> ... and offer solutions. >> so join us here at current tv where togethe
california are preparing for their first major wet storm of the season. a super soaker expected to stick around right through the weekend. free sandbags were given away ahead of the drenching rain that could trigger flooding as well as mud slides. the storm is also stirring up 70-mile-an-hour winds and up to 2 feet of wet snow in the mountains. >>> in pennsylvania a snowstorm that made a mess of the morning commute triggered crash after crash in the central and eastern part of the state. semitrucks jackknifed in the poconos, and cars ran off the road. some drivers were stuck in traffic for hours. several children suffered minor injuries actually when their school bus overturned in the middle of all that slippery mess. >>> and with that, here's a look at your wednesday weather, hopefully a bit calmer for most folks. drying out on the east coast today. sunny skies all the way done to florida. cooler along the gulf coast. milder than normal in the rockies. and that pacific storm also will bring rain to seattle and portland as well as heavy snow to the cascade. >> 40s in the pacific northwes
, illinois, california, and new york, the democrats are going to pick up 104 electoral college there and they did nothing there except go there for fund-raisers. that just shows you how sure we have of these states that are so blue and so red. but it's those nine states that we're talking about. that's what it's going to come down to, those nine battleground states and they are all-- with the possible exception of ohio-- all within the margin of error right now. >> pelley: norah, what do you see going into election tonight? >> one of the things i think is interesting is how much of the country has voted today before election day, the so-called early vote. it's been growing over the years. today we've seen more than 30 million people have turned out at the polls. interestingly enough, scott, the battleground state where this early vote has turned out. look at this. colorado, 77% has already voted. nevada. 72%. north carolina, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the result
their jobs. the fact this they see job growth happening. certainly here in california we've had job growth. so i think in our world in southern california we're going to be in pretty good shape. but uncertainty is never good. i don't think there should be an option. >> mr. caruso, yesterday craig barrett, former ceo of intel, described california where you live and do a lot of business as america's version of greece because of the level of public expenditure and so forth. do you see it that way? >> no, i don't see it that way. listen, california has its issues. locally we have our issues. there are income issues, there are increased taxes that i wouldn't necessarily want to have happen in the state, which did happen. but we have to address those. i think we've got positive momentum. i know we have positive momentum. so are we perfect? no. but california is growing at a much faster pace and a better pace than most of the united states. so i don't equate it to greece at all. >> mr. caruso, thank you for being with us and a happy thanksgiving to you. >> thanks you. >>> he's a billionaire, rig
. this was in california. it seems like natural gas was the obvious way to run energy in this country. thinking about the poll that snapped because of hurricane sandy in the new jersey area along a coast, they underestimated things like that. so, the broader issue is -- how does it work? who controls the rebuilding of our infrastructure? would it be wise to put money into these tubes -- these individual utilities? host: first of all, i wrote this piece. we were sort of talking about it. anyone looking at the big energy picture, not the individual pieces of energy, we spent all of our time talking about oil, gas, and nuclear. we debated about the environmentalists in the business community. we started to realize that, first of all, most americans get their energy from electricity. the change from this energy boom that we had of extracting record amounts of gas from the ground to plug in our homes, that really needs to -- it is the point that you raised about infrastructure. it is about investment in what we already have. about making the natural gas exploration, collection, and distribution system saf
